I just received these spurs. First impression was that they were super heavy, thick, and maybe a little on the large side size-wise for a "ladies" spur. They are not "pretty" but they are very functional. First time riding with them I was very impressed. The slight inward curve really helps to get a clear cue in without having to make a significant movement with your foot. For use on horses who typically don't need spurs, but sometimes require some "get up and go" motivation on a 99* show day, the big ball-end is just perfect. Great value for the price. Not to mention great customer service and fast reasonable shipping from 3Gems. This was the first time I've ordered anything from here and I definitely will again!
